The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. 

The Padres come into this game with a 73-59 record overall and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against the San Francisco Giants, the Padres only scored five runs but it was enough to secure the victory. The Padres offense hasn’t been good enough at times this season and they are averaging 4.43 runs per game. Manny Machado has hit 24 home runs and driven in 85 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Dodgers who sit with a 90-40 record overall but they are coming off a loss on Thursday against the New York Mets. The offense could only manage three runs against the Mets and that led to the defeat. The Dodgers offense is averaging 5.34 runs per game which is 1st in the league. Mookie Betts has hit 32 home runs and driven in 70 RBIs so far this season.

On the mound for the Padres is Yu Darvish who sits with an 11-7 record and an ERA of 3.41. In his last start against the Royals, he went seven innings giving up five hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Dodgers is Dustin May who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 1.64. In his last start against the Miam Marlins, he went six innings giving up five hits and two runs. 

The Padres are 7-0 in Darvish’s last seven Friday starts. The Padres are 0-5 in their last five games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0-1 in the Padres last five games on Friday. The under is 4-0 in Darvish’s last four starts. 

I don’t trust Yu Darvish, and he is going to struggle in this game. May in his last start gave up only two runs and his ERA is only 1.64. Look for the Padres bats to be ice cold here and that will be the difference as the Dodgers get the job done. Back the Dodgers -1.5 to cash here.
